We believe all students should have access to high quality public education. By removing barriers to student achievement, created by social and economic disadvantage, we support students on their education journey and help them realise their potential.

We also support the professional development of principals, teachers and education leaders through world-class leadership scholarships and education programs.

While the Public Education Foundation was established with the support of the NSW Department of Education and Communities, we now offer a range of national scholarships.  We work closely with education departments to ensure long-term, sustainable and accountable scholarship programs that complement education strategies. Our reach continues to expand, both in terms of students and school communities impacted and target areas of need.

We celebrate achievements in public education because we know that Australia’s public education sector is delivering high-quality and inclusive education to all young Australians
